A big congrats to Kristine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS791) on Splitcoast. She has a beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the cute dog theme but ended up changing most everything else. I used different stamps, dies & colors & used fewer layers w/ no designer paper.

After coloring the cute dog couple, I die cut them along w/ a few extra blanks in order to pop them up a bit. The kraft bg was stamped w/ a cheesecloth bg & cinnamon ink. I wanted a narrow, dk brown layer behind the dogs, but didn’t have the right color so I used a Copic marker to color just around the edges that would show before attaching it. The outline heart was also colored w/ Copics & I used a clear glaze pen to add some shine & dimension to the tiny hearts above the greeting & also the dogs’ eyes.

These are the Copics I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
